Ok got my c4 in my ranger all hooked up except adjusting the shifter cable and it wont start. I have figured out that the starter gear is about half an inch to short to turn the flexplate. Do I need a new starter or a flex[plate or ? The guy I bought it from said it would bolt right up and he had it bolted to a 4 litre ranger extra cab. ANY IDEA'S---- I think I gonna call the guy I bought it from since he is not returned my last 2 e-mails.

I had the same problem with my mothers older T-Bird. Went to Auto Zone to get a starter and the gave me one for a manual, needed an auto. They changed it and all was well.

Its a running, only a few things left to do before I am driving it. Anyone got any pictures of how to hook up the shifter linkage to the trans the part that holds the outerpeice so only the inner cable works on a c4 or similar?Or some good advise havent done this before.

usually the bracket that comes with the shifter just bolts to 2 of the pan bolts. make sure you get that linkage adjusted right!
